Vísenda/Wise Woman/Witch going for Völva
How did you hear about Pagan-Place
I saw a retweet by treebeegold on Twitter
Who am I
I’m originally from a town called Lycksele i northern Sweden and I moved to Norway in 1999.
I’ve been practicing openly as a witch since I started, back in 1994. The label I place on myself nowadays is Vísenda (Wise Woman), it isn’t easily explained, but as a fast explanation you could say that I’m in the ‘hedge’ category (I pick and choose what I like, regardless of religion and tradition), but my roots are firmly in the Norse tradition. At the moment, I’m researching seiðr, galðr and other forms of Norse magic. With the aim of one day being experienced enough that I think I deserve the title of Völva. And that’s a long way away.
I’m not Wicca, nor do I belong to any other religion. Don’t get me wrong, I do respect those who have chosen to do so. I’m more of a heathen than anything else, and I’ve chosen to follow the old Scandinavian ways, but in my own, modernized way. Many think of the Norse ways as a religion, but it isn’t, it’s a tradition (sed).
